Despite being the main town in Kingscote, there are limited places to eat. And this is one of the few spot that open early for breakfast. We were expecting great coffee...average was what we got. We chose to have their steak pie and sausage roll...the former was incredibly salty while the latter was passable. Service was good though, probably the... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry that you thought our coffee was not of a higher standard on the day, we shall add your feed back to our staff discussion meeting. Our pies and sausage rolls are supplied to us from a local bakery and it is surprising that you did not enjoy them more as this... More

Roger's Deli is also the local newsagency, and the cellar door for Roger's own range of Springs Road wines. As a cafe it's a handy spot for breakfast, morning coffee or a light lunch. There's always an excellent range of food on offer, both sweet and savoury. Select what you want from the array in the cabinets in front of... More

Went here twice during our Kingscote stay. First time had a wrap and my friend had a milkshake (was enjoyed!). Second time, I had breakfast. Roger very kindly made exactly what I wanted, which wasn't on the menu. I had delicious poached eggs, avocado, tomato and spinach. He offered gluten-free toast as well. I was really pleasantly surprised as there... More

Was here on the weekend with my family (two kids 8 and 10). Nice food for breakfast, very generous sizes. The food in the display looked good too. We enjoyed our coffee. Would recommend it as there aren't too many places in Kingscote for breakfast!

Popped in early for the papers at the side, and ended up coming back for coffee, wifi and a muffin. All which were delivered with the comfy hospitality we saw quite a bit of on Kangaroo Island. The muffin, when it arrived, was actually the wrong flavour, but cheerfully taken back and the butterscotch one we wanted was absolutely delicious!... More

So, good coffee is a personal thing and weak milky coffee suits some but for us we like our coffee rich and full flavoured. Good location and ambiance.

We had a wrap and a panini. Both lacked taste (sauce or gravy). The tables outside were not cleaned from the seabirds yet. Maybe locals like it, but we payed almost 20AUD just to be full and not to enjoy the food

Firstly thank you very much for your feedback. Our wraps and toasted Panini's are extremely popular. A very high percentage of dining guests these days seek fresh and healthy foods that are not covered in sauces, mayo etc. We do of course have a very large range of sauces, gravy's and mayonnaise available for our guests to have with there...
